Lorraine Finney – Hebrides


Lorraine Finney came on the Outer Hebrides workshop in 2019

I love, love, love the fact that Lorraine broke the rules in this image. There is something about Lorraine's work that is intriguing. It is very technically good and already has a real defined style to it. This runs through all the images that she showed; but when this one popped up it reached out and grabbed me. Gorgeous colours and textures on the rocks and moss gives it that distinctive Hebridean feel.

But mostly I love the flare - I use it all the time in my wedding photography and I shoot into the sun all the time. But I have yet to produce a landscape image that successfully uses flare. But Lorraine has done just that.

The way the sun is shining is creating form and unusual lighting - almost as though someone has held up a flash to create this atmosphere. Creating something like this naturally is very skilful.
Keep breaking those rules so delightfully well!
